In More Detail -

Ground Floor - Double doors open onto a sun room at the front of this beautifully light, family-sized home, instantly creating an inviting feel.

The warm tones of original parquet flooring flow throughout the open plan living/dining room balancing with the white walls and emphasising the amount of space on offer.

The open plan area offers ample space for both seating and a large family dining table whilst also featuring two focal point fireplaces. Dual aspect windows in the dining area allow plenty of natural light to tumble in and continue the relaxed and peaceful feel.

Fully fitted with gloss white cabinets and grey flecked worktops, the modern, triple aspect, kitchen opens onto a generously-proportioned paved patio, perfectly extending this versatile and sociable ground floor. Incorporating a Smeg hob and oven, a matching island offers a wealth of work and storage space, while sliding smoked glass boards add a sleek finishing touch to the stainless steel sink. A tall recessed alcove provides a discreet storage space for a freestanding fridge freezer.

Three double bedrooms are found on this floor. Continuing the clean line design of white walls and parquet flooring, natural light flows into each room from double aspect windows. Offering plenty of dual space potential these elegant rooms benefit from ample space for freestanding furniture.

A luxurious, freestanding soaking tub sits beneath a large opaque window in the family bathroom. Well-proportioned, slate blue walls provide a modern backdrop to a stylish white suite with polished stainless steel towel radiator, while black mosaic tiles line the floor of a wet-room style, walk-in shower.

First Floor - Stylish grey carpets flow up a wide staircase and out onto the first floor.

The master bedroom adds an instant wow factor to this coastal home. On entering the graceful room you encounter full height windows and sliding doors which open onto an incredibly spacious sun terrace and offer a panoramic view stretching down to the sea.

Easily adaptable to become a beautiful main reception room, perfect for entertaining and enjoying warm summer evenings, the south-facing aspect ensures plenty of daylight continues to flow throughout this home. The room comes complete with an en suite WC.

To the rear of the property a large double bedroom enjoys beautiful views of the South Downs and again offers plenty of floor space along with discreet alcoves ideal for wardrobes and storage. A well-appointed en suite bathroom features a contemporary L-shaped bath with overhead shower arranged in a metro tile setting.

Outside - Stylish cedar gates open onto a south-facing garden where grey gravel paths encompass a wide lawn with a classic coastal mixture of mature palm trees, hydrangeas and euphorbia plants. A wide driveway leads down to a brick built garage, while a second gate can easily accommodate a large motorhome or caravan.

The bi-fold doors in the impressive kitchen open onto a contemporary paved patio garden which instantly engenders an easy flowing extension of the ground floor. Generously sized with plenty of privacy this an incredibly peaceful and easy to maintain rear garden.

Leading off from the master bedroom, an impressive and extensive sun terrace boasts panoramic south facing views. Cleverly combining the refined style of glass and stainless steel balustrades with a more playful Astro turf floor, this is a wonderful outdoor space which offers something for everyone.

Along with a wide gated driveway, a brick built garage offers ample, secure off-road parking and storage.

What The Owner Says - "We've loved living in our home on Old Fort Rd, it's a quiet and exclusive corner of The Beach with wonderful neighbours that we will miss terribly. The beach boardwalk is only a few minutes away which has really made the beach accessible for walking our puppy or even for an early morning jog.

The village has everything you need and really comes alive on one of the many weekend farmers or artisan market days. We often stroll into town for them and have lunch in one of the excellent cafes and restaurants, you really are spoilt for choice here.

The Ropetackle Arts Centre always has a good production on, as well as the various events and festivals that happen on the riverside green, next to the new award winning, glass, Ferry Bridge."

In The Local Area - Old Fort Road is a very child-friendly area to live in and the local private schools provide a shuttle pick-up service.

Shoreham-By-Sea train station offers convenient commuter links, while Ferry Road is nearby with plenty of shops, a bakery and a popular seafood restaurant. The independent and high street shops and amenities of Shoreham Village are all within easy reach.

Local schools include Shoreham Beach Primary, Shoreham College and the private Lancing College.
